This is my favorite skirt. Everytime I wear this, I always, always feel beautiful and put together. It has a flattering fish tail cut, which shapes my hips and my legs beautifully. The skirt feels like silk but is just actually 96% cotton and 4% spandex. I bought this at a local boutique in college (about seven years ago) for P1,000++, which was, and still is, a big splurge for me. But I'd say it's worth the splurge as I have never seen anything like this, or even comes close to this, in the thrift shops I've been. This is truly worth the money. :)

I just recently purchased the DKNY body suit, which reminded me of the 80s. I thought it would be difficult to wear the suit but it feels just like a shirt but easier to wear since it stays put.

And the bag is linen, made by my boyfriend. A truly practical bag. If want to have one done for you, contact me. :)

Lucky Find: Bows

I am inclined to list these bows for sale at the Shop but I don't know who to price them.

One Favorite Look

One of my favorite looks I styled for the shop's September collection. The skirt (way too big for me) and the bag have sold out. I kept the black shirt though. :)
